THE day will have more than 40 exhibits all focused on educating the community on how to be more sustainable and assist the Coast's ecosystem.

UnderWater World is one of the 40 exhibitors providing information on their Turtles in Trouble rehabilitation program.

Event organiser Erin Horking said Towards Tomorrow was a chance for local community groups, organisations and businesses to showcase their amazing initiatives and products to a wide-ranging audience.

"Reef Check Australia will be there on the day with REEF Search, a virtual reef walk, and the Sunshine Coat Environment Council will be bringing their carbon cube which demonstrates how much carbon residents use," she said.
